On the Ciaran Dorris Sunday Session will be his guest ‘castaway’ the acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter Carol Laula.
Carol’s rise from a young unknown to a household name in Scotland has been phenomenal.
Carol first captured the attention of the media, when in 1990 her independent single “Standing Proud” was chosen to represent Glasgow in its year of culture.
Since then all five of her albums “Still”, “Precious Little Victories”, “Naked”, “First Disciple” and “To Let” have been released to high critical acclaim, as well as propelling her to the forefront of the Scottish music industry.
Carol’s reputation has also grown internationally over the years. She was even invited to perform at New York’s famous Carnegie Hall alongside Mary Chapin Carpenter and Sarah McLachlan at the very first all female singer/songwriter concert.
With ‘a style which bobs around somewhere between the sweet, clear delicacy of Joni Mitchell and the tougher edges of Joan Armatrading’ Carol has a massive fanbase that stretches to every corner of the globe.
In the 1990s Carol teamed up with Stuart Adamson to produce a series of songs that will no doubt be seen as a legacy to the talent of the late Big Country singer/songwriter. Carol has also collaborated with Jane Weidlin of the Go-Gos, Ryan Hedgecock of Lone Justice and Australia’s Cheryl Beattie.
She is appearing at the Acoustic Affair, City Halls, Candleriggs, Glasgow on 7 December.
